This Tuesday, Addison Lee, the London-based vehicle hire company, has added five Audi e-trons to its fleet. Over the next six months, the company will trial the five electric SUVs in and around London in order to see how it can facilitate the adoption of EVs in future.
Data gathered during the trial will help Addison Lee make decisions on which low- and/or zero-emission vehicles to roll out, when, and how many.
The whole Addison Lee fleet is already compliant with the emissions requirements for London’s recently-inaugurated ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ). The trial is hoped to be the next major step on the road to a 100% low-emissions fleet.
